Cincinnati Weekly Enquirer (Newspaper) - February 14, 1877, Cincinnati, OhioVol. Xxxvi no. 29wednesday morning february 14. 1877. Whole no. 2072. The poet in the City. Tow net stood in the somber town and spake to his heart and said a wit weary prison devised by Man of reason less place and dead t a Bis heart was Saa for afar he heard the sound of the Spring s Light tread. He thought he saw in the Pearly East the March Sun arise the Happy housewife beneath the thatch with hand above her eyes look put to the cawing Rooks that built so near to the quiet skies. Out of the smoke and noise and sin the heart of the poet cried a do god but to be thy labourer there Igei to leave the Strus on the gentle Hills Green Side it go and the Battle of lust and Pride 1�?T re of want and cal tit he Bent his ear and he heard afar the growing of tender things and ins heart broke Forth with the trav ailing Earth and Shook with the tremulous wings of Sweet Brown Birds that have never known the Dirge of the City a sins. And later when All the Earth was Green As the Garden of the lord. Primroses opening their innocent face cowslip scattered abroad bluebells mimicking summer skies and the song of the Thrush out poured the changeless Days were so sad to him that the poets heart beat Strong and he struggled As some poor caged Lark and he cried quot How Long How Long i have missed a Spring 1 can never see and the singing of Birds is gone i quot but when the time of the roses came. And the Nightingale hushed her Lay the poet still in the Dusty town went quietly on his Way a poorer poet by just one Spring and a Richer Man by suffering c. Fraser y tier in 8p�cttor. The House of Leopolstat or. A Soldier s Fortune. By miss a. M. Porter. I waiter xxiv. 5 be win a his servant i missing too a replied the intelligence Leopolstat a is Leopolstat the next morning when leaning on the Arm of his wife he entered the breakfast parlor. Count Kors Leim answered in the negative gayly adding a since he seems resolved to spoil our breakfast As lie did our supper by making it wait for him we must enter into a Resolution not to forgive the truant trick lie played us last night. Unless the Gallant gentleman can make a very Good excuse for himself i think the dignity and charms of these fair ladies live been grossly a the charms of some fair As overs a observed the Baron a May have tempted him to forego our _ a Wjt More Likely a interrupted the marshal a that the provoking Puppy has caught an atrocious cold and is at this Lime writhing in bed. He must have been out in nil that storm of Thunder and lightning and rain and so ill Post off to his lodgings and see after As the marshal took up his hat Charles thanked him with a How and a smile and the two Countesse laughingly bade him Bear their eternal enmity to Demetrius for having thrown such a stigma on their joint attractions. A i fear there is something Douce Day inhuman in this austrian air a exclaimed for sheim a for i protest to you All that not even the woeful supposition uttered by the marshal As he vanished just now has been Able to Damp the ardor with which i Content Date my breakfast. Are you hungry Good oils or Are you not i profess myself fam Ishing and therefore mean to fall upon the bread and Liam this very moment and for these very reasons a if my Friend Demetrius is Only Idle and insolent., i should be a great fool to stay my appetite for such a coxcomb if he is Nickish we shall be so miserable upon it that i know none of us will dare to ask for any tiling to eat. I really can not Grieve on an empty stomach if i done to replenish thyself with food i have no strength to groan and if 1 done to drink 1 can shed no a but you can Harangue pretty stoutly a interrupted his wife a Handso fast and fluently too that it is the Mutual interest of the countess and in to silence you with your breakfast immediately. If we done to do so our noisy Tongue will have wearied every Odd a a attention before we can claim our female privilege and use the table was now quickly surrounded and the liveliness which every one assumed to drive away the uneasiness visible in the face of Leopolstat soon awakened his sport Ive wit Ami made the time of the marshals absence pass less anxiously. The Baron arid count Forshier were in the midst of a whimsical dispute when the latter was told that a person wanted to speak with him in the Ante room. He obeyed the summons. What was his Surprise to behold marshal i Gersdorf with a face As Pale As death and Sci Ricly Able to speak from agitation. Forshier stood aghast. A what has happened a he exclaimed in a Low voice. A the has never been at Home a exclaimed the marshal a they know nothing of a who do you mean the people at his lodgings a a yes they have not Scon him since yesterday when he was there to dress for dinner. Heaven Only knows whither he can have gone or what has become of him a solicitous to quiet the alarm in which he now partook largely himself fors Liviem rather i considerately suggested that he might have supped with a party of wild Young men drank too much wine an d been a betrayed into momentary forgetfulness of every body else by the allurements of some pretty opera girl that if this party were eld at one of the company a Villas it might. Be a mile or two off and so his late appearance was natural. At an opera girl the marshal roughly snatched his hand out of of Rahiem a Angerly saying a no sir this Headstrong boy was once the victim of passion but id stake my life lie would never submit to be the a Lave of for Shiemi a Frank avowed that lie realty a poke what he was far from believing himself it reconciled the marshal. In the midst of their discourse Charles appeared. V his anxious eager countenance instantly caught the infectious paleness of theirs. At that moment Forshein almost wished the Earth would open and Swallow him for his late unseasonable buffoonery but be hastened to atone for it by calming his friends worst fears. �?o1 must see these people myself a said Charles after fora Hiem ceased a you know i can not go to them they must be sent for. Will you my dear fellow hasten to the i Renee of Nuremberg a and learn whether the Prince a get there whether in Short it be possible that a Duel with him a he stopped overcome for an instant then resumed hastily a did Yon Sec hon servant sir surely he Eoutz Tell where his master went last night marshal. At this struck with the most horrible suspicion was transfixed to the spot the marshal by ing him Shook off a tear and said in a tremulous voice a i could almost wish i had Nevei burned my fingers with touching any of you 1 i thought that i had worked out my own happiness and that of a dozen folks besides Ana in a like to find the very reverse. I Tell you Forshier this Demetrius has caused us All More heart aches than Ever hell be Worth ducats. I wish i had him Here Only for five minutes if the Puppy does show his face again mind ill not look at it. He May come when he likes and go when he likes for ill never notice one of nis action his brother in a such a state too ill never forgive him if he a above ground ill never marshal i Gersdorf left the room As he concluded in order to Send for the persons Leopolstat wished to question. Both Charles and Forsheim remained silent. Their continued absence could not but excite some uneasiness in the ladies and Baron i Gersdorf. Adelaide ventured to seek them and soon afterwards the cause of All this mystery spread dismay throughout the House. The persons inhabiting the place where Demetrius had apartments now appeared. They merely repeated marshal in Gersdorff a first account except that they remembered seeing Pierre come in at night with two other Meh and go up to his masters room where they staid Only a few minutes Ana went out again All together. The marshal had himself been again to the lodgings had opened All the drawers and bureaus but finding every thing Safe and not a single paper that you d Lead o information considered that Pierre was innocent of what they suspected a robbery. A Charles my dear Charles a cried Adelaide approaching him As be sat speechless with grief and perplexity a we alarm ourselves too much perhaps is it not possible that Constantia and lie May last night have been so imprudent As to Fly together a her husband started Joy flashed Over his face. A to my dear lie cried a i would Purchase that conviction i believe at the Price of half my Dearest she blushed As be pressed her to Bis bosom while she softly whispered a is it me or your child you would resign a a not Jou Dearest Angel of my life a Charles replied a nor yet-�?0 neither count Forshier who had been some time absent now re entered. Ajas lie was destined to destroy their momentary Hope. The Prince of Nuremberg was at on state business lie Princess bearing count for Sli Eimy a errand ventured to admit him. And bad herself not Only told him this but assured him Constantia was just pronounced out of danger from a brain fever. Here ended his feeble ground for Consolation. Forshier the Baron and the marshal were again dispersed in search of information one was charged with scrutinizing All parts of Vienna for the suspected Pierre the other to procure advertisements to be circulated in every direction the last was to make a tour through the places of Public entertainment which had been open the night before through All the Coffee houses where he might have been seen or where some person might be found who could give account of him Charles meanwhile employed himself and his wife in writing notes to different Young men whom they had heard Demetrius mention hoping to obtain through some one of these various channels a key to the mystery. The Day closed without a sing discovery. No one had seen Demetrius since the moment in which he left the room at Baron ingers Dorfus and Pierre a very few associates proved their Complete ignorance of his concealment. Officers of Justice were now in search of this Man and to his capture and confession Leopolstat secretly looked for All that he should Ever hear again of his beloved brother. There was no sorrow on Earth Strong enough to conquer Charles consideration for those around him. Lie stifled every expression of grief or impatience and it was Only by his continual though suffocated sighs that Adelaide found during the night Liat he never slept. Unable himself to walk or even to Bear the Quick motion of a Carriage Leopolstat was obliged to Delegate his duty to others. Again Bis Active friends commenced new inquiries again returned unsuccessful letters messages visitors came every hour to the Gate of the House but each came to profess the same in 1-Fortune count Forshier was at length forced to abandon Bis share in a task which lie performed with a brother a Zeal. Tbs truce was just terminating every officer was recalled to Bis regiment and he could no Longell remain from Liis. He a courted leaving Lorenzo As a companion for Adelaide whose spirits failed under the sight of her husband s distress and the pressure of her own. During a weeks hopeless search the thoughts of count Leopolstat often reverted to colonel Wurtzburg it is True that lie had received from this gentleman a very Strong and amazed denial of his having the slightest knowledge of Demetrius or Liis concerns but still an instinctive suspicion haunted him like a Specter and like a Specter vanished when he would have scrutinized it. Ilow or Why Wurtzburg should have i�?T1 Wurtzburg was with his slime in his Brothers disappearance he could regiment near Ingol stat. Wurtzburg had not form an idea. Of late at least Licu they met in Ulm been Friendly not Forward. Why then did he Susie it the poor Man he could not answer the question yet for All that suspicion itself was not silenced Pierre unluckily had been once the colonels servant and the association of ideas with this circumstance naturally produced together with Wurtzburg a dubious conduct at Bolzano prevented Charles from being thoroughly just. While Uncertain of his brother a Fate has own inaction appeared to him like a crime yet what could he do where turn with any Shadow of Hope without he could be present at the same time in every part of the Globe at once lie could not lie sure that he was not journeying from the very country that contained the object he sought and without he had some Assurance that Wurtzburg or the Prince of Nuremberg were concerned in the affair a Lead Nota single claim upon them for a decisive answer to tie questions his soul burned to urge. Nothing but the discovery of Pierre was Likely to unravel the mystery and for his detection he now exerted every Power of Money and influence. Tired the apartment of Charles. The deepest concern was settled on his amiable Kounien his hands Shook As he took one of a a within his and Stren a my Dizur Nephew a prepared lot so like a confirmation of on worst fears i have just now come from a spot nearly a league off where a countryman has disco it he faltered the fixed eyes of pfc arcs alone urged him to proceed a has discovered a he resumed a the clothes of your brother. They were concealed among the Hughes of a Thicket but after diligent search we conclude that As the River runs near his body a Charles suddenly broke from the Barons grasp with All the Force of his former strength. He spoke not but his eyes shot Forth a wild Ami lurid fire Asho flew with frightful haste toward the door of another apartment. A follow me not a he wildly exclaimed pushing away the Baron who would have entered with him a leave me a leave Meto my own heart and heaven a so saying he closed his door with precipitation Ami repeated no More for the remainder of the Day. The Good Baron alarmed at the effect this despair might have upon Adelaide instantly devised a method of getting her to leave Home. He dispatched a letter to Madame re Smarek with instructions for her conduct and then went himself to his Niece with that lady a urgent request to see her immediately. Having seen that the count was engaged with people on business he got her to leave the House without seeing him and certain that Madame de re Smarek would detain her to civil Force until the evening he returnee to wait the moment of his nephews reappearance. By the time count Leopolstat had sufficiently mastered that mighty grief which almost crushed the very Center of life he quilted his Solitude and joining a melancholy conference now held Between the Baron i Gersdorf and the Field marshal. Adelaide a situation rendered it nearly criminal to Shock her with so dreadful a discovery Andas Thad always been the counts we ish to have his child born under Liis own paternal roof it was agreed that preparations for their immediate journey to Hungary should be commenced. His wounds not yet healed and Bis debilitated health preventing the possibility of his sharing in the future Campaign and As he had unlimited leave of absence from the commander in chief it had Long been his intention to try Liis native air for some months. Marshal i Gersdorf voluntarily resigned the gratification of accompanying his son and daughter promising to devote every thought and every hour to the attempt of discovering that wretch Pierre who was now considered by them All As the murderer of Bis master. The atrocious Ness of Pierre a crime astonished and sometimes staggered their conviction when they reflected upon the Small inducements he had to commit it. Except the miniature of Constantia encircled with diamonds which Demetrius wore constantly next his heart and a very Small sum of Money in his Pussy he carried nothing about him to tempt any hut a hardened villain to the act of murder. Yet what other motive could engage Pierre to destroy the gentlest and most generous of masters if he were Only the instrument of another a vengeance As Charles firmly believed the clue to a discovery was lost. Forsheit no sooner entered Bohemia than be repaired nowhere to Liis utter Digap cointment be found the Canones had just reached her last. After her death which was sudden no person appeared to have met with the Appeal of Constantia among her papers and no person came Forward As if entrusted with the secret. Whether the letter in reply therefore had or bad not been her production was now left in doubt forever. At this period the safety of his wife was the first consideration of Leopolstat. He secretly covenanted with himself to wait till there was no longer any abuse for solicitude meanwhile to use every Means afforded by nature and by Art for his own restoration and then to revisit Austria with the full determination of keeping a never closing Eye upon All the actions of Wurtzburg and the Prince of Nuremberg. A my spirit shall not sleep till i have discovered thy Fate a he repeated to himself while he thought of Demetrius. A never my brother shall it cease to hover Over the objects of its suspicion till heaven permits me to blast them with ample retribution a when Adelaide returned from her visit to Madame re Smarek she heard with Surprise but not dissatisfaction her husbands intention of setting out for Leopolstat the second Day after the present. There was nothing precious to her in Vienna except Constantia whom she had several times vainly attempted the see. To All her solicitations the Prince of Nuremberg had civilly replied a this Niece was too ill for she now wrote to him again and the next morning received a freezing permission. The spirits of Adelaide were at present ill suited to the trial she anticipated frequently after her Carriage was announced did she Rise to go to it and As often did she sink again Upo her chair weeping and trembling. Constantia bad always been inexpressibly dear for herj>�6i Sake and How much More so now of Demetrius Charles dreaded the consequence of such a meeting but for Bop to express his fears lest his wife should i Ltd up the sacred duties of humanity and Friendship the her fondness for him. When hcs agitation subsided he led her to the Carriage in which they were slowly conveyed to the Palace of Nuremberg. The Princess received count Leopolstat the Prince led his countess to Constantia. For some time after the ladies loft them both gentlemen were silent. At last the Prince said coldly. A i find sir you Are still unsuccessful in your search after your brother. I wish the Young count Hud not made it my interest to rejoice at a circumstance which otherwise al Gay esteem for you would have taught me a a know of nothing Prince a replied a Lyon will Pardon me Prince when i frankly Tell you that i consider your conduct unjust and must insist on your recalling the expression which produced this unpleasant discussion. Recollect Yon wished my brother had not Given you reason to rejoice in his calamitous Fate you have now acknowledged his innocence you Are therefore quot bound As a Man of Honor to Unsay whatever would make that innocence Nuremberg instead of replying walked up and Down the room in great a tation. Charles calmly but in a tone of determination enforced his demand his suspicions of the wince gathered strength every instant and he hoped to push this advantage till the Princess ungoverned temper might discover that knowledge of the Young counts Clandestine visits which would furnish him with grounds for further examination. A i shall be loth to demand publicly a resumed Leoti Olstadt a what your highness seems willing to withhold in private but this recantation must be made yes sir it must or i stand disgraced to my brother a memory and my own conscience a count you take an unfair advantage of me a returned Nuremberg quivering As he spoke. A you Are Cool my feelings Are too keenly engaged for me to weigh the precise extent of every word�?T8 meaning. However. I must repeat that although i might speak too forcibly of your brother i am justified in asserting that it is unnatural to think he never found Means to see or write to Constantia without my knowledge. Her obstinate constancy is a proof of a was damning a Charles sternly exclaimed a was the mortal animosity of the Prince of Nuremberg is of Bis being the murderer of for the first time the p nce without changing color furiously dared the full Blaze of Leopolstat a eyes he stood steadily opposite to him for ail instant and then said a explain yourself amazed but not confounded by this unexpected sign of Innoce fice Charles answered �?o1 do not accuse you Prince. I accuse no one till furnished with proofs but i simply place the one accusation against the other to make you sensible that if i were inclined to judge of your probable conduct from your avowed motives As you have done by my brother my soul would not merely accuse but condemn Nuremberg was completely silence though Bis spirit inwardly breathed curses on the Man into whose Power he was thus betrayed by his own madness. He could no longer refuse the apology which Leopolstat required. He made it with an ill Grace adding a after this humiliating necessity you can not he surprised count to learn that from this morning i desire we May remain strangers and that while Princess Constantia continues under my guardianship i Hope the countess of Leopolstat will never Force me to the ungracious task of refusing a lady a he did not wait for any other reply than a dignified Bend of the head which Charles made him As he darted out of the apartment. Possessed with All the furies he hurried to a room near that of Constantia a where the loud sound of his voice soon induced his Princess to part the two friends Adelaide then rejoined her lord and they left the place. Far from having to Comfort Adelaide herself had been comforted. Constantia seemed inspired with a conviction of Demetrius being still alive and placed so Strong a dependence on this fond imagination that Adelaide insensibly became a convert to it. Several detached speeches of her uncles authorized her in suspecting his knowledge of her meetings with Demetrius nay he had once dropped an expression which strongly indicated a suspicion at least of her application to the Canones he had been the first to Tell her that her Lover was missing and had uniformly tried to persuade her that his own rash hand had shortened his life. The very admission of that Friend whose visits lie had hitherto refused was another ground for believing he knew that Demetrius was removed from the Chance of injuring him for , not killed Constantia thought him. Her uncles disposition might Lead to great enormities to the violation of Law of personal Freedom of All those ties which bind men of common honesty to of Ether but she was incapable of supposing Din so abandoned to humanity and the dread of future punishment As to become a deliberate murderer. She conceived that Pierre had betrayed his masters Confidence was accessory to his disappearance and the most Likely on the offer of a great Reward would one Day discover the place in Wheeli Demetrius was imm ured. Actuated by these ideas she charged Adelaide to have new advertisements sent to every popular paper throughout Europe addressed to this Pierre offering him an enormous recompense to discover the persons concerned. Her heart smote her As she spoke for she could not forget that Nuremberg who would be eternally disgraced were he found accessory to the plot was her Uncle but the Liberty nay the life of her blameless Demetrius was at stake As Well As her own earthly peace and that of Adelaide and Charles and she gained courage therefore to offer some of her own wealth for the prosecution of this renewed attempt. The sudden death of her Bohemian relation banished the Hope of obtaining an immediate release from the tyranny of her Uncle but now she Felt As if that oppression could no longer injure either her health or her spirits. This new and mighty anxiety by giving a Strong impulse to her mind had renovated her Frame she thought no More of herself she remembered Only Demetrius she Felt As if she ought not to lie while his Fate was unknown or his wrongs a revenged. Pale wasted feeble As she seemed from the effects of her late illness yet Adelaide saw with Delight life roused up in All her looks it was not the consuming Blaze of to the figure on which i know you prided yourself your neck your arms your finely rounded shape its All vanished gone forever my poor Damsel and if it were not for the beauties that still exist in your venetian estates i verily believe that no Man on Earth would take you off my a momentary Flash of resentment on the Cheek of Constantia convinced the Prince that her Rosy coloured blood was not quite gone. She gave him a look of disdain saying a yes sir there is one Man and he thank heaven is the Only one to whom i would m the probable Cuse any Man for rejoicing i murder of another. Surely brother a privileges even the Prince of p1 no act of my Nuremberg to boast of so monstrous a the Prince turned Pale with the violence of that gathering passion which he had not the courage to show. A you must allow the Prince of Nuremberg a he said a to have some regard to pro Eriety. As the brother of count Leopolstat should have always treated count Demetrius with just consideration but when he preposterously elevates himself to my level when he persisted in retaining the affections of Princess Constantia a a and did he persist a Charles eagerly demanded a when your highness last say him was it not to resign those proud Hopes has he since that moment attempted to see or correspond with the Princess a the penetrating eyes of Leopolstat levelled full at the Prince perhaps put the other too soon upon his guard for evidently checking a fierce ply he answered peevish by a no i suppose he has not but the Pron persists in her attachment knows i have other views for her this confession a observed Charles jct it Charles severely eyeing Holh a that can sex Deverish Energy but the steady increasing glow of vital strength animated with a new motive for living Constantia resolutely refused to indulge herself in lamentation when Adelaide left her. But she was sad and lost in reflection when the door of her apartment was thrown open by the Prince. Standing on the threshold and beholding her for the first time since her illness he eyed her altered figure with a mixture of vexation and malice. A your exchequer of Beauty quot he said insultingly a will soon be exhausted child if you draw on it thus Prodi Gally. Since neither affection nor authority can reason you out of destroying yourself go to your Glass and take counsel there if you have but the vanity of your did sex that will have More effect upon you than a Hundred ghostly Constantia turned away without speaking. Irritated at her silence the Prince continued a i Tell you. Girl you can to afford this waste of Good looks. In the season of your greatest abundance there waa none to spare and now tha you have sighed and groaned and scolded and fainted away the Rosy coloured blood that used to make those features of a ours tolerable believe me they Are reduced it very common place features indeed. As give this person changed As it a a you a make him a Devilish handsome present upon my soul a exclaimed her Uncle. Tears gushed from Constantia a eyes but she concealed them by averting head. He continued a and who May this moderate gentleman be i Pray a a count Demetrius of the Prince now burst into a brutal fit of laughter during which Constantia hastily endeavoured to pass him. A stay stay child a he cried forcibly pushing her from the door a clean not let you go yet you Are positively very diverting. So you would make a present of yourself to a dead Man Why truly in your present shadowy state the ideas not amiss and i think you would be an admirable match for a Dost thou hear him just heaven a Constantia wildly exclaimed shuddering and closing her eyes As if unable to look upon sue i a monster. Nuremberg now changed his tone his countenance blackened and roughly seizing her Arm he said in a voice like Distant Thunder a wretch if thou could st guess All that i know of thy infernal machinations i owe thee no pity no mercy and thou Shalt find he Flung her from him with a violence which threw her against the Wall but heedless of the act he remained in her apartment traversing it with Hasty strides. Stung to the Quick by the Concession forced from hint by count Leopolstat he now found one defenceless creature on whom to pour the vials of Wrath. Stepping near her again he abruptly exclaimed a you have seen your Friend Madame Leopolstat i can Tell you for the last time. None bearing that name shall Ever again pollute my House with their a your commands Are Laws in your own House certainly sir a answered Constantia a of course i shall never expect to see her Here but when i am my own mistress in my own House a the Prince interrupted her a so you look Forward to that event after All i thought what your burning passion would come to you that were dying for this hungarian Paris when be was alive can now live on Aye and live merrily too when he is dead. For my part 1 expect to hear of you turning nun at a your highness was mistaken then a replied Constantia. A no sir do not suppose i will Ever voluntarily quit the world while there remains a single Hope of finding him in it. Do with me what you please but i warn you that a Day of retribution will arrive As you Deal with me now shall you be requited at my bands hereafter. You dare not i believe you would not violently kill me yet you have not scr pled to use a cowards method for ridding me of life. You have daily insulted afflicted and imprisoned me you have destroyed my youth Ai d my health you May still do More but i to 11 you there is an invincible something in this heart of mine which will survive All your injuries. Beware of placing yourself too much in my Power lest when i have tire Means to ruin your unsuspected character the memory of these outrages should Supply me with the in the Prince now stood As if blinded by lightning his senses were locked up in amazement by so unexpected a threat. Constantia seized the moment and flying past him got into her waiting maid s room fastened the door and cast herself on a Couch completely exhausted. The very next morning Nuremberg ordered his family to prepare for an immediate journey. Soon after they were All on their Way to Venice where Constantia had a Superb mansion Over which the Prince As her guardian could Rule with As absolute authority As in his own. Chapter xxv. In total ignorance of that painful circumstance which rendered the murder of Demetrius almost certain Adelaide quilted Vienna warm with the Hopes which Constantia bad awakened. Yielding to a Sweet superstition she believed that her friends expectations had something of prophecy in them and frequently when tie thought of his brother a irreparable loss blanched the Cheek of Leopolstat she urged her own fond fancy with All the earnestness of conviction. He heard her in silence but their grasp of despair was at his heart. In consequence of that feebleness which still incapacitated the count from enduring much exertion their journey was the work of Many Days. It was evening when they reached Leopolstat. The Sun was just setting behind the Castle in the same splendor with which Charles had seen it when he last visited his Home the Convent Bell was tolling for vespers the Marble Quarry shone with reflected Light. As he beheld it the Beautiful vision of the past the picturesque objects he had remarked there the Blooming youth of Demetrius Mude for an instant a frightful impression of reality he leaned Forward from the window suddenly recollected himself and throwing his head Back in the Carriage gave Way to tears. How do tie Gay bubbles of Hope and expectation burst under the noiseless foot of time Charles had always promised his soul a kind of Holiday of Delight whenever peace should enable him to take Possession of this inheritance endeared to him As the place of his birth and the gift of Adelaide he now came to it without one emotion of pleasure. That sentiment of desolation which the heart bereaved of a dear object spreads Over All creation seemed in his imagination to have fixed its eternal throne at Leopolstat. It a breathed a Browner horror Over the Woods a it chilled him in the thundering torrent and the sweeping storm it pervade every sound and every View and rendered the expected birth of nis child Only an important event that would for Ever Calendar the Date of his direst calamity. But he refused indulgence to a sentiment which if suffered to increase palsies the firmest souls and takes from them both the Power and the will to fulfil their appointed duties he sought society he directed All the tenderness of his nature toward his wife ipe bin he strove to surround her with that tempered cheerfulness so agreeable to elegant minds and often in the fond attempt at making her Happy nearly rendered himself in the company of Madame f so. Forshier and the occasional visits of the prior from 8t. Xavier a two months passed away. At the expiration of that time he became a father. What a multitude of strange delightful emotions pervaded him when he took his child for the first time into his arms they effaced every former impression they spread Bliss throughout his soul As if he were suddenly endued with a new and More exquisite sense than any hitherto known or As if he waked in heaven and found himself eth realized amid beatitude. He stood Long rapt in this trance without moving his eyes from tie infants face and scarcely breathing at last some other persons action disturbed the babe it waked and it cried. The dream now ended the fathers mind was instantly crowded with images of care and sorrow and the idea of Demetrius like a piercing pain momentarily lulled returned with apparently tenfold strength. It was different with Adelaide. The birth of their child was to her a circumstance that still further abstracted her from other considerations it had Long been dearly familiar to All her thoughts it was Ever blended with some solicitation about herself and far More about her husband. His disappointment if the babe should be Horn dead and his grief if he should perish occupied her incessantly. She could never forget that an hour of trial and anxiety awaited her and therefore dwelling so much on one subject weakened her perception of another. When first she pressed the infant to her bosom the emotion she Felt was not like Charles new and bewildering it was but the same Bliss perfected and secured which had often before thrilled transiently through her Frame. She saw in it an innocent creature to love and to protect one that was henceforth to be entirely dependent upon her tenderness and full of a conviction at once so sacred and so Sweet she surrendered herself to happiness half believing that since so much was already Given Providence would not deny the rest. The birth of this babe therefore was to her a Good Omen but to Charles a sad memorial. It was now december and the dying year had been As fatal to the Hopes of Germany As to the Domestic peace of count Leopolstat. Fluctuating and weak the councils of the austrian Cabinet while they changed their measures Only varied their methods of being contemptible Given up to potty jealousies party cabals and female influence they had planned without judgment and acted without concert. In giving the command of the armies to the Archduke Charles they had Ever contrived to neutralize the Wisdom of such a Choice by referring his operations to the Aulie Council which deciding at a distance upon plans that he formed where they were to be executed and of which promptness was the very life Seldom judged rightly or decided with sufficient dispatch. The grand army during this Campaign had been committed to another general As Brave but not so penetrating one who was equally fettered by useless restrictions and who consequently could not be expected to emulate his predecessor s glory. After the conclusion of a second armistice Prince Charles was solicited to accept again the important Post of commander in chief. He stipulated for Lull Powers and they could no longer he withheld. Austria had sought her protector too late. On repairing to head quarters the Archduke found an ill provided army dispirited and broken to pieces he bad not time to seek those resources which his inventive Genius instantly suggested for the enemy swept Forward like a Resistless sea and to wait their approach was to court inevitable destruction. Their tide of Success still rolled terribly on lie was driven Back toward Vienna from which the affrighted inhabitants lied with the precipitation of despair. The Prince now saw that peace Only could save his country stifling therefore All those selfish sensibilities to popular or particular opinion which often stimulate men to the prosecution of an object that they know will fail them at last he abandoned a vain attempt signing a truce at Steyer which was but the prelude to a final termination of the War in the ensuing year. As the news of every defeat readied the retirement of count Leopolstat he reflected with More embittered regret on Liis inability to share in those exertions and disasters which made and suffered with an a subdued heart in a Good cause Are so Many crowns of glory to a Pariot Soldier. He contemplated the growing Power of France with dreadful forebodings and when a pacification was finally concluded while others gave themselves up to careless Joy he he saw in this delusive peace Only that horrid Calm which precedes an earthquake he saw that France would gather accumulated Force from this temporary restraint and would at length burst Over the whole continent in one wide War of extermination. It was perhaps fortunate for count Leopolstat that Public affairs so often wrested his thoughts from their usual subject for the Days the weeks the months passed and nothing transpired about Demetrius. Pierre seemed to have vanished colonel Wurtzburg was quietly going through the routine of his duty in Garrison and the Prince of Nuremberg remained shut up with his family in Venice.
